and that is quite an achievement for us. on the change column, a little bit to the left, you will see that the margin of scores that changed from last year is somewhat small. we think most of the scores are insignificant statistically and the big point that we can see from the chart is almost all of the psas are able to approach or are well-above the 85% threshold we aim for. what we're trying to do for the public, of course, is to present outcomes that they can appreciate. you know, to provide parks that have great facilities, and so when we do our park evaluations we break them out into 14 features. these are the various aspects of the park the benchs, the children's play areas, hard scapes, lawns, that really denote the various types of maintenance and types of experiences that the users have. again they have been very stable. the changes since the last year are fairly small. and over the time you can see that the department is has really different focus to the area s where there is high use, the gardens, restrooms, athletic fields have improved. there are low use areas,

all are at the heart of the this place the idea we call san francisco. you know, many of us came here from smoip else or their parents did. and whether it was guadalajara or a rural county in texas what brought us here was that hope where in san francisco as most places offered a better life. it was judged by a play we create not by a language we grew up with. we're a city that rewards the inno matter and the risktaker. fred and harvey ye very and willie brown and nancycy pelosi. we've known our share of adversity, earthquake and the problems with aids. we're not afraid to fail or doing what we know is right. and most importantly we know that none of us succeed alone whether it's in reconcile or business or life. we know as michelle obama said so well, this past summer when you walk through that door of opportunity you don't slam it shut you help someone else walk through that door behind you. my fellow san franciscans i know there's no limit to the opportunities in this city in we keep the door open. if we commit ourselves and put politics behind us we can help future generations and
. but it's especially heartwarming to us to be able to collaborate and to bring housing and services together and the collaboration between mercy housing and st. anthony's. we would like to thank banc of america, who was our capital partner in the new markets program and again, we're simply thrilled to be part of this. it speaks perfectly to the vision that many of us share for how to move families and communities forward. i have to say that i for one, if this is what the groundbreaking is like, i am incredibly excited to go to the grand opening celebration. thank you all.

[ applause ] and then to come back here and celebrate with us on helping us turn the state on something that is going to happen that has been a miracle now, 38 million times for people in the last 60 years, father harden, that is just you and your staff. all of the volunteers, you know, the volunteers at the heart of the success of st. anthony's dining hall. [ applause ] >> i want to say that, because i have been at those kitchens. i have served meals. i know that it is tough to have people who are down and out in the worst times of their lives to be able to be introduced -- and we know it's more than a meal, but it gets started with a home-cooked meal. and then the hands come out and then the thoughts and hearts exchange and how can we help you? and that has been, i think, the ingredients for more than just a great meal. it's an ingredients of life and how we celebrate it here. it is as leader pelosi said, it's our character of san francisco. and so it is also part to say not only do we add that with a new dining hall, but we add on top of that 90 units of affo
or hearings on this. the only time that we heard of it was when it came back to the land use committee. when we objected to the area, they passed it on anyway as they have always done with those of us who live and breathe in bayview hunter's point. i would like to say there was an eir done, it was done by the health department and i disagree with what they presented to the staff here because of the fact when the eir was done, it was not done on the sight of 5433rd street, it was done a block away. i had three deaths in my family within the last two weeks from cancer, a young lady, 30 years of age died from asthma, as you know in my community, it's the worst in the city, in the united states of my people dying, the community have changed and i don't know what happened. i used to be able to receive -- when you have in your meetings, agendas, i'm still alive, in fact, i would like to say this, i wish that you bring this back to the floor dealing with the discretionary review, you're going to have other people talking about what's happening. my daughter sent you all an invitation next week, next
